Sell your work through Barnsley Museums

Are you an artist? Would you like to reach more buyers by selling your work through Barnsley Museums? If so, read more about how you can apply to sell your art or craft through our Made in Yorkshire shop. We have outlets at the Cooper Gallery and other Barnsley Museums.

Made in Yorkshire

At Barnsley Museums we support local artists and makers and love to showcase local creatives. Our Made in Yorkshire shop is a great platform for Yorkshire makers to display and sell their work.

We're committed to reducing travel miles for all of our products. We ask that your work is either produced in Yorkshire or has a link to the area. Your craft can be anything from watercolour to ceramics, printmaking to glassblowing but it must be your own work. We're looking for quality and creativity in all the artists we work with.
